It’s been five months since Gamnesia split off from Zelda Informer, and we’re still working hard to provide one of the best experiences on the web for gamers of any kind. But of course, we don’t always necessarily know what you want, and reader input is one of the things we value most here at Gamnesia, so we want to give you the chance to let your input be heard.

In the last few months, we’ve been doing a lot here at Gamnesia. We’ve been getting ready to unleash some great content on our new YouTube channel, including news recaps, podcasts, and maybe even more somewhere down the road. Barry Herbers has recently written a few fantastic editorials, as have many of the rest of our writing staff. We’ve recently hired a small slew of excellent new staff members for more editorial content and made a few changes to the back end of the site as part of an ongoing effort to maximize efficiency and quality.

But as much as we’re doing to try and improve, we aren’t the only ones who can see areas of lackluster or even areas of fault. Again, we want to know what you, as readers, want to see from us going forward and why. Head past the jump to keep reading, and leave us a comment to make your voice heard!

A new inFAMOUS: Second Son trailer has been uploaded to OfficialPSMag's YouTube channel, this time showcasing some new gameplay footage. The demo shows the game's main character, Delsin Rowe, running around a Department of Unified Protection compound, killing the DUP officers and destroying the DUP compound that was set up in the area. The graphics shown are simply amazing, and Delsin's movement and combat animations are very smooth. The player controls Delsin's fireballs much like he or she would have controlled Cole's lightning bolts in past inFAMOUS titles. This is very good for veteran fans of the series, as it seems the learning curve for all the new mechanics won't be too intimidating. So far, the game looks as fun as the first two and is shaping up to be a great addition to the PlayStation 4's launch window lineup.

Are you as excited for the game as I am? Watch the trailer after the jump.

Recently, Nintendo of America president and CEO Reggie Fils-Aime stopped by the show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon; while there, he had the chance to answer some Twitter questions, and the video has now been set live on YouTube! In it, he discusses the wide range of third party support that is coming to the Wii U later this year, his favorite Nintendo franchise, and Super Smash Bros.

Reggie stated that the Wii U will be getting a myriad of third party games this year, including Disney Infinity, Skylanders, and Watch Dogs. Then, when asked which Nintendo character he would want to be, he replied: Link. He wants to live in Hyrule and save Zelda; he added that The Legend of Zelda is his favorite Nintendo franchise (what can I say, the man has great taste!).

Reggie's final question involved Super Smash Bros. @taco_belmont asked the question that Nintendo fans have been wanting an answer to for a good long while: will Reggie be an unlockable character in the next game? Reggie replied that it was all up to Sakurai, but if he was asked to join the battle, his body was ready.

Would you like to see Reggie in Smash Bros.? If Wii Fit Trainer can make it in, why not Reggie? Or Nonspecific Action Figure, for that matter? Hit the jump to take a look at the video!

Oh no a dying console! Call the amberlamps! Wii U! Wii U! Wii U! Wii U! Wait Doctor! It seems the Wii U has plenty of life support already to keep it going! It just has a cold. It isn't dying at all!

Whoever says the Wii U has no games coming is full of bologna. There are dozens of titles, from indie to AAA, coming to the system in the next year or two. Need proof? YouTube user palancas7 has compiled a video showcasing the majority of known Wii U titles coming in 2013 and 2014!

When the wife leaves home, that means a daddy can kick back, relax, and play some Yakuza. But fathers beware; your spouse could return at any time.

Yes, this commercial is in Japanese. It's a hilarious advertisement though. Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition is a Wii U title published by SEGA. If you thought the console's marketing was bad, Yakuza may just be the savior. The commercial delivers information on the game, advertises the features of the GamePad, and throws in some humor for good fun. The result is some of the best video game marketing I've ever seen.

You can check out the trailer above. Hopefully Nintendo brings the marketing muscle to Wii U this holiday season. This is a great start, even if it's a Japan-exclusive title.

Don't let the fact that the entire video is in Japanese turn you away from this clip because it contains 7 minutes of wonderful Pikmin 3 footage. Inside you'll see gameplay, lush environments, and evil dictators leaving behind their loyal followers to be feasted upon by wild Bulborbs. Those rock Pikmin certainly can't be good for their health.

"The size of the world is impressive. There are many fantastic places to explore and great characters to meet. But what really excites us, and what we hope will excite you too, is that we can create an Oz that becomes a defining version, like we did with Alice. When people think of Alice, they now think of a bloody Alice with knife in-hand. We have that chance with Dorothy, to reinvent her and seer into history a version that can go beyond and live above the MGM or Disney film versions. This will be our Oz, our Dorothy, your Oz, your Dorothy." -- American McGee

Spicy Horse Games, a game studio spearheaded by Alice Madness Returns' American McGee, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new game OZombie. OZombie is a game that hopes to reinvent Dorothy and the world of The Wizard of Oz in a new, much darker way. The game will tackle themes of conformity, employing zombies and their master, the Scarecrow, as a metaphor for conformist society. McGee says the world is an "impressive" size and should be full of intriguing locales to explore.

OZombie's crowdfunding goal is $950,000, and, at the time of writing, it has already reached over $86,000, so it's doing well. The campaign currently has three stretch goals. If the first is reached, at 6000 backers, the team will open the mysterious box from the game's Kickstarter trailer. If the second is reached, at 11,000 Backers, Chris Vrenna, at one point a drummer and keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails, will join the team to compose the soundtrack. The third goal has been thus far left ambiguous, labeled with, "Defined as the campaign progresses."

Microsoft's E3 press conference had a very impressive teaser. A cloaked figure moving across the desert is ambushed. The hood is removed to reveal... Master Chief. The crowd's applause roared over the audio. But... what did we really see at E3?

The reveal of Halo for Xbox One has many fans worried. Halo 2's tenth anniversary is next year, and many players want to celebrate with a remake. Did Microsoft's E3 showing kill those chances?

"There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game." -Phil Spencer, Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios

The Xbox One is one hundred dollars more expensive than the PlayStation 4. That's an issue for Microsoft. Although many of the suits over at the company may believe the console is at a reasonable price, many consumers are already turning to the PS4 for a cheaper alternative. Can the Xbox One do well at a higher price point?

One economist believes the answer is no. Rafi Mohammed, author of "The Art of Pricing," states that a console's aim is to get into consumer's hands. The real money comes from games.

"It's still $100 premium, and they're including a Kinect electronic console which is a benefit over the PlayStation 4. What they really should be doing to get consoles in consumers' hands is to decrease the price and make the Kinect accessory, which not everyone uses. Make that optional. An 'a la carte' purchase." - Rafi Mohammed, Author of "The Art of Pricing"

What do you think? Is the Xbox One too expensive? Should Kinect be optional? Sound off in the comments.

E3 was two weeks ago. What, you don't know about any of the games announced there?! Is your name Patrick Star? Because you may have been living under a rock.

In case you missed all of the E3 games, VideoGamerTV has you covered. From the makers of the famed Abridged series comes a brief video reviewing (almost) every game at E3. Poking fun at misplaced hype we see for nearly every game announced nowadays, the film also parodies the rubber band ball of bias that is the video game industry.

While Microsoft was busy getting shot down and murdered by fans (and a fair amount of the media as well), a few people were asking the question: "why can't Microsoft have DRM if Steam can?" Well, in this weeks episode of Jimquisition, host Jim Sterling makes an attempt to answer that question. The through-line of his argument is that consoles were made for convenience that PCs couldn't offer but at the cost of features only PC could offer, so adding the inconvenience of PC-like DRM to console games would entirely defeat the purpose of console's existence in the first place.

Sterling also talks a fair amount on a topic with which viewers of Jimquisition will be familiar, that of the distrust between gamers and most game publishers as well as Microsoft, which is in stark contrast to the strong trust built between popular PC gaming software Steam and Good Old Games with their consumers.
